Coolant leak

Where is the most common place a leak will occur on a radiator? And is it easy to fix?

Usually it'll split the seam where the plastic meets the aluminum

May I ask if you know for sure it's your radiator or just a coolant loss?

I just traced my leak down. The tranny cooler was snugged to the tank with a nut and rubber washer..the nut backed off a little and it was dripping past it. Two turns and the leak stopped
